In Celebration of the Human Voice - The Essential Musical Instrument

What Happens to your Brain when you Sing?

August 2018

Professor Sarah Wilson

Singing in the shower makes your voice sound great, but is it also good for your mental health? We asked Professor Sarah Wilson from the School of Psychological Sciences at the University of Melbourne. Wilson suggests that yes, singing offers a range of neuro-protective benefits, acting as ďa form of natural therapy.Ē As well as activating a range of networks associated with movement, listening, planning, memory, and language, singing triggers the release of the feel-good neurotransmitter dopamine. According to Wilson, the benefits of singing can be triggered by both singing and thinking about singing. So if you donít feel comfortable breaking into song on the bus, try thinking about it instead.
